Early childhood classroom teachers are the heart of any education program. They nurture children’s spirits and expand their worlds. They hold kids' hands until they are ready to stand and run and explore on their own.
ABPPC advocates for teachers—for increased salaries and benefits, for planning time and professional supports in and outside of the classroom. We know that teachers can’t be fully present for their students when they are worried about their own basic needs.
